. tons of confetti dropped on times square. >> jim dolan of wabc was there. >> reporter: hours of standing out in the cold did not slow down the million or so people in times square who didn't seem to mind the weather. all right. some minded the weather. edwin is from puerto rico. how long have you been out here? >> seven hours. >> reporter: you're a little cold, aren't you? >> yes. >> reporter: security is tight here. police are everywhere, in and around the crowd and many here brought their children, who, well, may have been coached a little bit. and the cold didn't seem to have a great reason why she was here. >> because -- >> reporter: you came because your mom made you. >> yeah. >> reporter: most people were here for the reason taylor came from syracuse. >> this is my first time in new york city. >> reporter: you wanted to be here, didn't you. >> yeah. >> reporter: how is that working out? >> it's good, but it's cold. >> reporter: the crowd is big and not always as polite as some would like. nick from rockaway park has it covered. >> the crowd is getting a little crazy wit
learn this week the actor charles durning died in new york on monday. here's jim axelrod. >> reporter: known as the king of character actors charles durning appeared in more than 100 movies in a career that started in 1962. >> got to get you out of here! >> reporter: the crooked cop in "the sting." >> you're lieutenant william snyder? >> i don't know what's up? >> i know this is kind of quick, but that's how i am. >> reporter: the love-struck widower who proposes to dustin hoffman in "tootsie." >> i love to dance. >> reporter: but it was the over-the-top governor -- >> excuse me. >> reporter: and the bumbling nazi colonel in "to be or not to be" that earned him two oscar nominations in the early '80s. charles durning grew up poor in upstate new york. he left home at 16 before starting his theater career as an usher. world war ii interrupted that career. he was 21 years old on d-day when he was in the first wave to hit omaha beach, the only man in his unit to survive. he rarely spoke about that day, but recalled the landing at the national memorial day concert in 200
under a jim crow system, okay? now we're talking about the people who get preferences now were born in 1994. that doesn't seem like very long ago to somebody my age. 994. that's, you know, 30 years after the 1964 civil rights act. according to the latest census, one in four americans now describe themselves as being something other than white. african-americans are not the largest minority group anymore. they haven't been for a while. latinos are a larger minority group than african-americans are. and neither one of them is the fastest-growing racial minority group. the fastest-growing racial minority group is asian-americans. african-americans are growing at only a 12.3% rate, white americans at only a 5.7% rate. another rapidly-growing group are people like our president who could check more than one box in the race and ethnicity section of their questionnaire. seems to me, and i think in the supreme court, that in a country like that we cannot have a legal regime that sorts people according to their skin color and what country their an access or to haves came from and treat some
market. we'll talk about that and much more with chuck todd and jim cramer straight ahead. >>> what we'll all be watching, wearing and playing with in the months to come. >>> call me a mind reader. i can tell you one of the top stories of 2013. of course, it's going to be the birth of the duke and duchess of cambridge's baby. and coming up, we'll talk about the preparations under way at kensington palace for his or her arrival and what it will mean for the royal family. >> probably not going to cover that that much on this show. first let's head to the news desk and check in with andrea canning. happy new year. >> new year to you. and happy new year to you at home. >>> kelly o'donnell is on capitol hill this morning with all the details of the fiscal cliff. >> good morning and happy new year, andrea. frantic rush of negotiations leading through this holiday. there has been a breakthrough that could affect everyone's pocketbook, but it happened with time nearly running out. three hours before the midnight deadline and the vice president arrived on capitol hill. >> happy new year. did yo
and happy new we are. i'm jim handly. >> i'm angie goss in for wendy rieger. >> so close and yet so far. right now the country remains without a deal on the fiscal cliff. although the senate's solution passed by an overwhelming majority this morning, the process has come to a screeching halt on the house side. the number two republican in the house, virginia congressman eric cantor, says he cannot support the bill as it stands now. many republicans say that they are upset the bill doesn't do much to cut federal spending. democrats are demanding the vote but house speaker john boehner has not agreed to let members vote or amend the bill. >> that's fair enough. some have principled opposition. you also have to be pic

[ jim ] we raise our chickens cage-free. we're trying to make a better chicken. >>> as the gop controlled house of representatives pours over the fiscal cliff deal passed by the senate, many issues on the taxes and spending are still unresolved out there and could make for a 2013. joining me now is howard, the resident fellow of the urban editor. now let's start with what the current deal does accomplish as far as changes on the wealthiest americans. what has happened? >> that is the main thing that the current deal does. they protect 99.3% of the taxpayers from any tax increases from the income tax. many people, they will see the payroll tax increases, but they won't see any increase tax views. those are people making more than $450,000 or $400,000. they will see their taxes revert back to where they were in the clinton administration. their top right will be 39.6%. and going up. it will be about 20%. so they're going to see the tax increases. the estate tax about $5 million with a 40% rate, the $5 million exclus
-- on a no tax increase on anybody. >> that's right, which is why boehner pulled the plug, jim, you'll recall, on that vote, which was supposed to be a show vote to put the pressure on the president to draw the line at a million. when he realized he didn't have a majority of the republicans, he didn't go forward. what this is now is an old school where you have a bipartisan society, where boehner would be asked to permit a vote, even if he knew most republicans would vote no. it's humiliating for a speaker, especially in this milieu, in the world we live in now. it would set up boehner to maybe lose the speakership when the vote is taken in the house for that on january 3rd. it would certainly mean a fight. you would have paul ryan, cantor saying, wait a minute, this guy forced a vote we didn't want to take, but that's what the president is trying to get boehner to do. give me a few republicans, says boim bhoim, i'll deliver democrats, i'll deliver senate and sign the bill and save 97% of americans from a tax hike. boehner might not be able to do it or might refuse to do it. that's the next s
of the root causes? >> i think and i am not pointing fingers, when we went after jim wright, newt was the speaker and jim was forced out of office. they went after newt. the combat became very personal. that is one of the things that started this movement. over time, i think it has become political as well as personal. much more political and personal. >> she said raising cain, are -- -- you said raising cain. you will the gavel for the oversight committee and use that to raise the number of investigations especially of the clinton administration. what do you see as your legacy of that tenure? >> i think bill clinton, president clinton and hilary as secretary of state do not like me very much. i was chair of the government oversight committee during the time we were investigating whitewater and we were investigating campaign contributions that came from sources outside the united states and from various people. there was an awful lot to that. we had people testifying like johnny chung, they had contributed money to gain favor with the white house. there were other illegal contribu

's stay on the subject of guns and what to do about them. congressman jim moran says there is a disconnect between the national rifle association's leadership and the nra members. the democrat from virginia is pushing a package of gun reforms he says most nra members support. and representative moran joins me now live from washington. good to have you with us. >> good to be with you, thank you. >> congressman, when many politicians think about the nra, they think about this legion of people who stand shoulder to shoulder with wayne lapierre and the leadership and what he says they believe. you believe, though, that the nra leadership is out of touch with the membership. why? >> well, this bill that we're introducing on the first session of the next congress has five measures where two-thirds of nra membership support them. in fact, in some cases one of them is supported by 79% of the nra members. so i do think there is a disconnect between the nra members and the gun manufacturers who basically pay the salaries of the nra leadership. but what this would do is to require background checks,
and choice and possibility and sacrifice. so wonder if you could go back. i know you were in the jim crow south in baker county, in georgia and you were daddy's girl. and trying to get all gangster driving the tractor at 4 years old and in the streets and neighborhood. tell us about that. >> well, you know, we were in baker county, out, you hear about, you read about some of the i have haves of earlier years but the gator and the sheriff in our county wanted to be known as the gator. the gator actually ruled every thing, everyone in the county. you can't imagine looking at the western from earlier days anyone like him but he was worse than what you have seen in your worst western. but growing up in that we, my family lived, my great-great grandparents had come to baker county. i don't know whether they came as slaves or not but i know they end up there as share croppers and with the up tent on buying land and that they did. they bought enough land that the area where i grew up was still today called hawkins town and lots of family. but it was that way, you know, the hawkins lived in one a

is out of step with its members. joining me now is virginia congressman jim moran. briefly, let me ask you first about the fiscal cliff because i have you here. you and your members will get back to work tomorrow. i'm wondering is there going to be a last ditch effort to avoid this and what do you think is going to happen? >> i think the likelihood is that we go over the cliff, martin. and, of course, that's my primary focus because my congressional district would be the hardest hit if beat go over the fiscal cliff. i've got tens of thousands of federal employees and a great deal of defense spending would be at risk. so if we don't suspend the sequester and it looks like this very small deal may not even achieve that, then i'd have to be a "no" vote. so if i had to guess right now, i don't think we're going to be able to reach a deal no matter how small it might be. of course, at the very best, all we would do is stumble forward for a couple more months until we hit the debt ceiling and then face another crisis which is really a crisis of confidence in the government. i just can't imag
from jim in hot springs national park, arkansas. what kind of business do you own? caller: the last one i had, i was in the construction business. and when i sold my last house i decided to move too hot springs, the first resort in america. host: you are a retired business owner? caller: right. host: if you were still running your business, how would you be looking at the fiscal cliff? caller: i've got some ideas i would like to say. the first thing we would do is eliminate all the people that do the free housing and food stamps and by about all those office expenses and just go with an earned income credits that would not exceed 15 cows and dollars per year. -- $15,000.ould that affec it would help reduce the need for taxes, so they would have more money for others things, rather than paying taxes. if the current welfare system pays people as much as $45,000 a year to add up all the benefits, the free medical, with medical,to doctors or hospitals would cause normally $1,500 a month, but an insurance company for a family, and they get about $800 a month for free housing and another $70
